Sorry, unrelated but Carrillo is losing, big. Don’t know a thing about his replacement, could be worse, I will need to do research, but hey, maybe next time when an elected offical comes to Austin, ie. an elected Mayor, with a health concern for his/her community, maybe baratting him/her is not such a good idea. Remember the FIRST responsibility of being an elected offical is the safety of everyone you represent, no matter what their views are or what their business interests may be, they all have a right to live in a non-toxic environment. If you can’t handle that with an open mind, you shouldn’t run under ANY political label.

Through Feb. 20, Carrillo had $322,601 on hand; Porter had $11,251.
Porter, who said he spent about $50,000 on his campaign, played up his lack of political credentials in his campaign, and he credited his outsider status for the victory. "People are tired with professional politicians, and looking for a change," he said Tuesday night.
…campaign consultant Susan Lilly, who said Carrillo's campaign had spent at least $600,000.
Nothing like flushing 600 large down the toilet
It will be interesting to see where he lands now, maybe a nice cushy job at an O&G company? I heard the Town of Dish needs a…, naw, that probably wouldn't work out…
Carrillo pulls race card in accessing blame for loss:
Loss due to epic fail.
Finally—a big loss by a pro pollution politico in Austin. Long overdue. Hit the road, RRC.
It really couldn't get much worse than Carrillo, Williams at least respects private property rights, and didn't like the force pooling stuff the other two were doing. Sure, the replacement might not be much better, but generally speaking, getting any incumbent out is a good thing, especially where O&G lobby is involved, so yes, I still see this as a good thing.
So, generally speaking, ANY incumbent needs to get out of office, even if he/she is the best person for the job? That's a broad spectrum to measure how you vote. It might cost you the best person for the job.
